Two officials of the Bassa Community Academy have accused the Organizing Committee members of a Back to School one day Tournaments in honor of President Sirleaf of stealing money given them by Robert Sirleaf, Senior Adviser to the President.
Mr. Oscar J. Brown and Mr. Quman Kiatamba, instructor and Sports Director of the Bassa Community Academy, late Tuesday evening told reporters at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia that their institution was invited to participate in the one day football and kick ball Tournaments at the ATS.
The two instructors said their school (Bassa Community Academy) was treated badly through out the competitions, adding that organizers did not give them even water to drink.
" We left our homes since this morning along with some of our students to honor the invitation given to us by the organizers of this competition, but to our biggest surprise, the three rounds kick ball matches were reduced to one round, and the disappointing part about today’s event is, Mr. Robert Sirleaf told us in person that each school was going to receive US$ 3,000 , but after the competition we were given US$200.00 by the organizers instead", they lamented.
"We term the act carried out by the organizers as stealing, and we are calling on Frank Seeton and his co-workers to please give us our balance money, because all of the participating schools deserved that money it was given to us by Mr. Sirleaf", they indicated.
Reacting to the instructors’ clams, one the organizers who spoke to reporters in a very angry tone, said he felt disappointed by the two men clams that they were treated badly and were told by Mr. Robert Sirleaf that each school was going to receive three thousand dollars United States dollars, which according to him was untrue.
